Kokatat Men's Tropos Helix Kayak Drytop - With styling cues from the Rogue, and benefiting from the excellent value of Tropos waterproof/breathable fabric, the Helix is an excellent value in a drytop. A customized urethane coating is applied to the multi-ply nylon outer shell. This micro-porous coating contains millions of pores small enough to prevent water droplets from entering, while still allowing moisture vapor to escape to the outside of the garment. This provides the same level of waterproof protection paddlers have come to expect while greatly increasing the breathability of the garment. All seams are factory sealed, and latex gaskets at the neck and wrists further reduce water entry. Superstretch neoprene self-draining cuffs protect the gaskets from abrasion and UV exposure. The double-tunnel waist with dual adjustable closures will seal with either a spray skirt, or the Kokatat Whirlpool Bibs to create a dry system.

The Five Ten Anasazi VCS V2 now features Stealth(R) Onyxx(TM) rubber for the hardest, stickiest, most durable sole in the world. This is the highest-end performance shoe for sport climbing and hard bouldering, and is the future of climbing. The VCS and Lace-Up Anasazi climbing shoes by Five Ten are the top selling performance rock shoes in Europe. The VCS offers more sensitivity for pulling on holds on steep rock--a powerful tool for extreme sport climbing. This is a second-generation Anasazi known as the "V2," and if you're familiar with the originals, prepare to be amazed. Although the Anasazi V1 (formerly known as the Anasazi Velcro) from Five Ten led the high-performance shoe category for years, new technology has allowed them to make it even better. The V2's have new Stealth(R) Onyxx(TM) rubber, with 25 percent more friction and twice the durability of other rubbers. The Anasazi VCS and lace ups also have Five Ten's new Happy Fingers heel, with more comfort and security than ever. Designed by Charles Cole.
